It is a school reunion meeting. Wandering in the revamped school premises, I wonder what would be different if I had to do it all over again.
We depended so much on what was written in books, and whatever teachers said. There was nothing wrong in those times. It had a certain quaintness of innocence, which post-modern childhood lacks. Starting on a blank slate facilitates learning as there is no conflict.
Yet, I wish I had information on push-buttons to cross-verify things. Different opinions confuse, but also expose one to different realms of thought. It increases adaptability and acceptability of contradictory views.
wilted flowers wish
for more colour, fragrance in
bygone bud eras
take me back again
revamped worlds of innocence
to acquire wisdom
